Bruce Bent II is in charge of Double Rock, a financial services company, that was established in the 70’s. The company was founded by his father and a friend and has been helping the ordinary citizen access money, invest and get profits from sources that ordinarily benefit the mainstream banks. Bruce has been working with various financial institutions before he joined Double Rock. He is a graduate of the North Eastern University where he studied Bachelor of Science in Philosophy. He was recently interviewed on Idea Mensch, and these are the things that he had to say about his leadership and investment skills.
When asked about how his day typically looks like and the how he makes sure it is productive, he stated that the best thing about his company is that it is more focused on what is delivered to the customers as opposed to the hours that an employee will be tied down to an office desk. He added that the ability to move around, talk to clients and the fact that he can use his phone to connect with them helps him perform at the top of his capabilities.
When asked how he brings ideas to life in his business, he stated that the secret is to have a good team supporting them. He added that he always tries his best to bring the smart people on board because they are the ones who help with the innovation. He added that the one trend in technology that has been exciting to him is how affordable communication is and the fact that he can manage to talk with clients regardless of his location.
When asked what advice he would have given to a younger version of himself, Bruce states that he would have started diversifying the services that he offered sooner. He is however happy about the path he has taken because it has had a positive impact on his success. Before the economic downturn that happened in 2008, he used to manage the Reserve which provides the money to the major financial markets around the world. Bruce has achieved a lot and is likely to make even more as a business leader.
